Researchers seek volunteers for generation gap investigation

East Carolina University child development and family relations professor Dr. Mark White is among a group of researchers who are investigating whether the generation gap truly exists.

Researchers in The Generations Project are seeking volunteers to complete a survey that should highlight generational differences related to the economy, society, workplace, family and relationships.

White said that the concept of a generation gap is generally accepted.  “We talk about the silent generation, baby boomers, the millennials, and generation x and y,” he said.

“However, there are very little empirical data documenting clear and consistent generational differences,” White said.

White said that The Generations Project is among the first research studies nationwide that examines similarities and differences between the generations.

“The findings will provide insights into some of the larger societal trends that may play out in government, business, education, and families. The results we obtain will provide data to inform educational and business practices, workplace interactions, and public policy,” he said.

The researchers are seeking volunteers to take a survey related to the economy, society, workplace, family and relationships. Participants of all ages are asked to log in to take a 30- to 45-minute survey by Dec. 1 at

Survey participants are anonymous and will not be contacted.

In addition to White, the Generation Project researchers include Drs. W. Jared DuPree, assistant professor in family therapy at the University of Houston – Clear Lake; Tim Rarick, Brigham Young University – Idaho; Katherine Hertlein, assistant professor in the marriage and family therapy program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Mary Short, associate professor of clinical psychology at the University of Houston – Clear Lake; Sharon Hall, professor of psychology at the University of Houston – Clear Lake. White is associate professor of child development and family relations in the ECU College of Human Ecology.
